Activist students at an Arizona university are demanding that Kyle Rittenhouse be'removed' from school, calling him a 'violent killer,' despite the fact that a jury found him not guilty of all counts

After Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder, outraged students at Arizona State University asked that he be expelled from the university.

After killing two white men and injuring a third during a Black Lives Matter rally in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020, Rittenhouse, 18, was exonerated.

He stated that he was an ASU student during his testimony earlier this month.

Since then, the institution has verified that he is registered as an online student, a position he could have retained even if he had been convicted, because online classes do not need criminal background checks.

However, the Arizona State Institution Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU have formed an alliance to demand that'murderer Kyle Rittenhouse' be expelled from the university.

The band of liberals have a string of three further demands: that the university release a statement denouncing 'white supremacy' and 'murderer Rittenhouse'; that they back a 'multicultural safe space on campus'; and that they redirect funding from the ASU police force to support the aforementioned 'safe space from white supremacy.'

'Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed "justice" system - Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims,' the letter says.

'Join us to demand from ASU that those demands be met to protect students from a violent blood-thirsty murderer.'

They plan to hold a 'rally and protest to get murderer Kyle Rittenhouse off our campus' on December 1.

A Students for Socialism spokesman said that ASU must understand that other students do not feel safe with a 'mass shooter' being admitted.

'The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we as the ASU community do not feel safe knowing that a mass shooter, who has expressed violent intentions about 'protecting property' over people, is so carelessly allowed to be admitted to the school at all,' the spokesman told Fox.

'Our campus is already unsafe as is, and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible.'

Rittenhouse's lawyers successfully argued that the teenager was acting in self-defense when he shot dead Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, now 28.

He testified about how he was afraid for his life after being accosted by demonstrators who threatened to murder him.

President Joe Biden expressed his displeasure with the decision, saying he was "mad and alarmed," but urged people to remain calm.

During his campaign to unseat Donald Trump last year, he called Rittenhouse a "white supremacist."

Republicans have accused Obama of'slandering' Rittenhouse, while right commentators like Sean Hannity believe Biden is guilty of defamation.
